today i ran the car for a bit to try and clean it out, ran at idle for about 20 minutes, then used a zip tie to hold the throttle at 600 rpms for 20 minutes then 900rpms for 20 minutes. during the last 20 minute strech the check engine light came on and turned off as soon as i cut the zip tie. i then reved up the engine a few times taking it to 5kish a few time and the check engine light also came on at high rpms and went back off when it dropped

i did clean the maf further whith a quetip but still cant understand why i would clean the throttle position sensor. unless im missing somthing...
